80's band Ambrosia's founding members include guitarist/vocalist David Pack, bassist/vocalist Joe Puerta, keyboardist Christopher North, and drummer Burleigh Drummond. The band's first 80's hit was Biggest Part of Me in 1980.

Throughout most of the 70's Ambrosia was a progressive rock band. In 1976, Ambrosia remade the Beatle's song "Magical Mystery Tour" for a movie called "All This And World War II". There's also a soundtrack album featuring other artists doing covers of Beatles songs.

Ambrosia's biggest pop breakthrough came in 1978 with the number three hit "How Much I Feel." The band followed this success in 1980 with another number three hit, "Biggest Part of Me," and the number 13 follow-up "You're the Only Woman."

The fourth album from Ambrosia, One Eighty, was released in 1980, and changed direction from progressive rock to mainstream pop music. This album earned the band three Grammy nominations, including Best Pop Vocal Group. The title of the album is believed to signal the group's 180 degree change in musical direction.

Ambrosia's fifth album Road Island was released in 1982. The album was poorly received by critics and fans alike. In the wake of the album's disappointing performance, the band broke up.

Since 1990, Ambrosia is back and going stronger than ever. In 1997 Warner Bros. released Ambrosia’s long awaited greatest hits CD, Anthology, an incredible album that spans the group’s entire career and includes three new tracks. In addition to Anthology, the entire Ambrosia catalog has been re-mastered and released on CD for the first time ever. 2000 marks the 30th anniversary of Ambrosia, and the band has celebrated with a very busy touring schedule that has reaped box office success, while proving to the world that Ambrosia will be a driving force in the new millennium.
